Saxophone maestro Jonas Knutsson and the keyboard genius Mats Oeberg have played together since childhood and know each other inside out.
"On a summer's day in 1981 I met Mats Oeberg for the first time. I was 16 and did a recording for the local radio station in our home town Umea with Mats' cousin. He was 10 years old and when I asked him how he liked the music he said: Fine but E5 on the piano is out of tune....
Since that day we have been friends, playing a lot of tones together over the years, in as well as out of tune. Our teamwork is not all that much about the compositions any more; rather they are excuses to make music and have fun together enjoying common threads of thought and feeling." - Jonas Knutsson
"I'd simply like to quote Joe Zawinul: If I could talk about the music, I wouldn't have to play it." - Mats Oeberg
